Each year, ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI) cordially invites cities and towns in selected countries to participate in WWF’s internationally acclaimed Earth Hour City Challenge (EHCC). The EHCC is run by WWF in collaboration with ICLEI and the Swedish Postcode Lottery.
Founded in 2011, the Earth Hour City Challenge initiative was created by WWF to celebrate cities and towns that are taking innovative actions towards creating a greener, cleaner and more sustainable city to live in, while inspiring other cities to do the same.
Following the reporting period, an evaluation process conducted by an international jury of experts takes place and leads to the nomination of one Earth Hour capital per participating country and one selected global Earth Hour Capital. All finalists are celebrated and promoted through social media, web, films, conferences and a global award ceremony close to Earth Hour.
For the 2013/2014 edition, local governments from the following countries were invited to enroll: Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, Indonesia, India, Mexico, Netherlands, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Thailand and USA.
